Gordon Connelly to step down from Managers position

Wick Academy Manager Gordon Connelly has decided to stand down from his managerial duties and tomorrow’s game against Turriff United will be his last at the Harmsworth Park where he will be able to part from the Club with the dignity and gratitude he deserves given the success he’s achieved. Gordon, better known as Goggs explained he can no longer give the time, commitment and dedication that the post merits. Chairman James Innes said ‘It’s the end of an era for our Club and the success Gordon brought the last three seasons will never be forgotten, he’s the only manger I’ve worked with in my now fourth year as Chairman and his successful tenure is set in stone’. Innes added ‘who could forget the afternoon in November 2015 when we finally lifted the elusive first senior silverware and no matter where we move from here, the feeling and feat of winning the first trophy can never be repeated, but in football as in life people move on’. ‘Gordon, his wife Claire and their two girls Amy and Katy, will be sorely missed by everyone connected to Wick Academy FC. We wish him every success in the future and thank him for the time he has spent with us at the Club’. Tichie, Ross and Tom will be taking the team in the interim until a successor is appointed.
